    Anyone wanting a PIMCO higher yielding fund might want to look at PONDX. Decent payout at 6%, lower volatility and expenses.

  • Linn Energy Management Justifies Higher Acquistion Value For Berry Petroleum [View article]
    Well, of course, any management always puts a happy face on everything, and they use buzz words (one of my least favorite is "challenges". Another is "confidence", which means they aren't really certain).

    What else could Linn's mgmt. say about the extra compensation , that they were keeping their fingers crossed?

    There are enough moving parts in the whole LINE scenario even without the BRY thing. Add that and you have confusion. Best to let everything play out and avoid reading all these rosy/gloomy analyses.

  • I Like Cake And Icing So I May Soon Buy A Slice Of This Hospital REIT [View article]
    So, the dividend % has been static, but won't that automatically go up as earnings improve due to the 90% requirement? With eREITs, the yield is one indicator judge how the company is doing from a profit standpoint.

  • Time To Consider Linn Energy: Here's Why [View article]
    MLP,

    I think it's shameful the way everyone's beating up on James lately. After all, as you said, he is a good contrarian indicator.

    I'm not so sure that FL is one of the better locations as you describe it. The state was among the leaders in foreclosures, and still is.

    No brainer that LINE would have to sweeten the deal.

  • BDCs With The Lowest Fees: Part 2 [View article]
    Buzz,

    I think your opinion of MAIN is that it's currently overvalued with a limited upside?

  • I'm Not Investing In GOV Since The Thrill Of Victory Isn't Worth The Agony Of Defeat [View article]
    bdoors,

    Yeah, spot on.....how many times do you read about govt., especially the Feds, laying off people or downsizing? I think that would be never. The "shutdown" doesn't count.

    I do agree with the previous commenter that RMR, with their shady history, is the X factor here.

  • Sleepy Martin Midstream Partners Is Poised To Wake Up And Grow [View article]
    Nes,

    Checking them out. Earnings call on Nov. 6. Any idea why debt is so high?

    Info from the company is pretty thin gruel so far, guessing because it's only newly public?

  • Linn Effectively Admits To Misleading Investors And Announces Key Accounting Changes [View article]
    LINE up $3.12, end of Fri. Nov 1 trading. After hours up $.18 LNCO even higher, over $33.

    Hooray for those who kept the faith and hung in there. Wish I had.

  • Telecom Argentina: High Dividend (Maybe) And Potential Near-Term Pop [View article]
    Right. Invest in a country led by the rabid anti-American Kirchner, who is hell bent on nationalizing everything.

    Maybe after the next revolution.

    Nice company over time, but fairly valued at this time, to say the least. One to consider on a pullback. That it didn't do so after the latest earnings is a credit to them, I guess. Still too high to buy now.
